For me, I narrowed down to this list
  1. Shortcuts/icons/widgets - backup my Nova Prime launcher settings (have to re-add widgets)
  2. Photos/videos - auto-backed up to google plus/dropbox/copy
  3. Apps - I usually don't restore apps, and instead, just let them auto-download from the play store, and then, restore app data using titanium backup. Titanium backup can of course restore app+data as well.
  4. App data - titanium backup restores it
  5. Call logs/SMS - titanium backup can restore it

Add whatever else you need, and figure out how to backup/restore it. Then, just create a script to do all of this.
Ha. That's a good one. If I knew how to write a script I probably wouldn't still be putting off updating my device! Thanks for the help though.

Yeah well look at the date of my original post. I still haven't gotten around to updating! I just haven't been able to stay up late and do it... and I need the phone functioning beyond normal business hours.

If there's any concerns with the latest versions please let me know. I'm hoping to go through the process this week.

backup>nand> photos of my layout> unroot> update> factory reset> reroot > ROM> resetup things the way I like it.

Do I have this right?

Should I be avoiding MH8 for any reason?

Thanks.
